The new year is the time to set new goals, prioritize your life, and take a good look at your finances. The new year is in FULL SWING, so how are you doing with all of your resolutions so far? Is college savings a priority on your financial goals list? If you have children, it probably is. If so, Florida Prepaid is an easy way to get started.
Did you know that student loan debt has reached $1 trillion of debt among Americans? The time to start saving is now! When it comes to my kids and college, there is one thing that I know for sure. Besides making sure they go to college, I want to be sure that they are not going to be in debt once they graduate and begin their adult working life. That stress CAN be avoided and I will do everything in my power to be sure they start debt-free.
I can’t express enough that starting early is SO VERY important! My baby girl is 15 and driving. 15 years have FLOWN BY!
Don’t get me wrong. As a family, we have educational goals. Grades are extremely important to us. Extracurriculars and volunteer work are also very important. My two oldest are in high school. They are both well on their way to academic scholarships and Bright Futures scholarships as well. I will continue to work hard to help my children attain scholarships through academics and sports, however, I’m well aware that college is expensive and we will need additional funds to have a smooth college education. This is where an amazing program like Florida Prepaid College Plans comes in.
My son is applying to UCF in less than a year. I feel confident that he will not only get into UCF, but excel! We are excited for him…and a little nervous. He will most likely choose to live at home for the first year, but I know that if he changes his mind and lives on campus, he will not go into debt.
Florida Prepaid College Plans is the longest running, most successful and largest prepaid tuition program in the nation with over 1.6 million Prepaid Plans sold. There are five different Prepaid Plans, each with specific costs, payment schedules and benefits to suit your family’s needs and budget.
